About Sharon & Rick

I was born and raised in a suburb of Charlotte, NC and was living in Wilmington, NC when I was invited to a girls weekend get-away to Vail in 1993. I met my husband Rick in the Red Lion the first day of that trip (blissful ever since!). Rick was living in Wisconsin at the time, so we dated long-distance for a year and a half. The following year he proposed to me at the top of the Mountain Top Express lift (4) overlooking Sun Up Bowl, China Bowl, and Blue Sky Basin with a photographer in-tow. I said 'yes' and moved to the Midwest to start our new life together (I'm still not certain that leaving a coastal community for the Midwest was the best idea :-). Needless to say, Vail is truly a magical place for us. Our family escapes our day jobs for Vail as often as we can.

Owning a place in Vail was a dream of ours since the day we met. Now that we have a place to call our own, we are happy to share our Vail home with you. We currently live in a Minneapolis suburb where Rick is an executive with an employee benefits administration firm and I am the director of a large preschool.

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We hope that you enjoy our place as much as we do and we welcome you back on your next visit to the Vail Valley.

Why Sharon & Rick chose Vail

Lion Square Lodge is so close to all that Vail has to offer. The ski-in/ski-out convenience and Lionshead Village steps from the door makes this the perfect place to be, winter or summer. Lion Square Lodge has so many amenities which makes staying here incredibly easy and convenient. Unlike several ski-in/ski-out places, Lion Square Lodge North Residences are very quiet during the evenings which makes it the perfect place for families and couples looking for a romantic get-away.

Wonderful condo!

We have stayed in various places in Lionshead over the years and Rick and Sharon's condo has them all beat: clean, well maintained and equipped, great location, great view, great deck, and so comfortable it feels like home. We certainly plan on returning next year.

We had an incredible stay over the 4th of July weekend! The condo was updated, clean and had everything we needed--the kids loved the Murphy bed! The location was ideal and allowed us to get anywhere with a quick walk. We hope to visit again soon!

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 2 friends visited Vail for a ski vacation and this turned out to be the perfect rental. The owners Rick and Sharon did a great job communicating with us every step of the way. The unit had 3 beds total. The master bedroom with its own bathroom, a murphy bed, and a pull-out bed. There's also a second bathroom. We enjoyed the free Netflix and wifi available to us in the unit and we cooked breakfast in the kitchen each morning. The balcony was a nice bonus with beautiful views of the mountain and was a great spot to have a coffee each morning. We parked our rental car in the free reserved parking space in the basement of the building and didn't touch it until we left for the airport. The condo is in the heart of Lionshead so once you park you won't need to drive anywhere. There's a ski rental place in the building and another one in the next door building. There's a grocery store and a liquor store right next to the condo building as well. Restaurants and bars are all walking distance too. Nothing takes more than a few minutes to walk to including the ski lifts. Add the end of the day sking you just drop your skis off at the ski valet at the end of the run that takes you into Lionshead. Pick them up the next morning when your ready to ski again. Couldn't be easier! If I return to Vail I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

A Great Ski Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I traveled from California to celebrate our anniversary and to experience Vail for the first time. Everything we experienced exceeded our expectations. It was the perfect ski vacation. Rick and Sharon's beautiful condo was the perfect location that made access to everything very easy. When we arrived, we parked our car in the covered garage and never used it again until we left eight days later. Everything is walking distance. We would have a short walk to the ski valet where our ski's were stored. This is just steps to the gondola. Rick was awesome to work with. Being new to Vail, Rick provided detailed information about the village, restaurants and activities. He even gave us step by step information about the mountain, the chair lifts, the runs and the best way to get to the back bowls. The views were amazing. In the morning, we looked directly at the mountain, in the evening we were looking at the beautiful lights on the pine trees. This residence has everything you need. The furnishing, the high quality workmanship, the amazing and comfortable king bed and the two bathrooms really makes your stay feel like home. Thank you Rick and Sharon for being a part of the memories of Vail that will last a lifetime!
